The RD Academy High School Team Camp at Santa Clara University is one of the best avenues to get exposure to top level NCAA Division I Baseball. This team camp allows high school players from 12 teams to showcase their ability, compete against high level players from the west coast, and be identified by Santa Clara's staff and other colleges, scouts, and coaches.
Players will participate in five full games at Stephen Schott Stadium at Santa Clara Unviersity or Saratoga High School in Saratoga, CA. There will also be daily instructional skill sessions and a breakout session with Santa Clara Baseball Head Coach Dan O'Brien to discuss the college baseball recruiting process.

San Jose International Airport (SJC) is located less than five minutes from Santa Clara University and Schott Stadium. Other airport options include San Francisco International Airport (SFO), located approximately 40 minutes north of campus, and Oakland International Airport (OAK), located 40 minutes north in the East Bay.
